"Upon the finding of a breach, the sole issue of the Appellants is meritorious. The court shall proceed to assess damages; the principle of assessing damages has been restated in Agu Vs. General Oil Ltd. (2015) LPELR-24613(SC) as follows:

 

"It is now well settled that in a claim for damages for breach of contract, as in the instant case, the court is concerned only with damages which are natural and probable consequences of the breach or damages within the contemplation of the parties at the time of the contract. See Mobil Oil Nig. Ltd v. Akinfosile (1969) 1 NMLR 227, Arisons Trading & Engineering Company Ltd. vs. The Military Governor of Ogun State (2009) 15 NWLR (Pt. 1163) 26." Per OKORO ,J.S.C.
